Last week, we revealed that the Crysis 2 installation data size is at least 4GB based on what it says on the box. After installing the game’s data, it seems that it actually installed less than the data that it stated on the box art
Oh that's good then.
Good news everyone!
Woo installing right now I hope so Edit Done with the install mine ran quick. Cant check in-game =\
I need to ask this, there is a problem with installs in the PS3? why everytime there is an article about the install-data size of certain game? you know it's pretty easy to change the hdd from the PS3 when you run out of space, a 320GB HDD @ 5400rpm runs smooth inside of the PS3 :P
Yeah i've never really understood this either.
Its because its mandatory versus the optional installs for the 360. It doesn't matter that the PS3 has always had larger HDD or BR, actually because of BR, if there's ever a case of an install being required it will be treated as a major issue. In short, its a blind/reactionary attack point. One that's been undermined because the install for the 360 is larger.
if it improves performance i'd install 20gb, i dont know what the fuss is all about.
I can raise the bar on the above comments... Call of Duty NEVER has any install.
Cause its the same shet :D
you mean lower the bar?
It'd raise the bar if we were playing limbo.
I never had an issue with installs on my PS3, not sure about those who don't own one...
From what I've read, those that dont own one have a huge problem with the installs on PS3.
Have to wonder though why there is a need for install even when there is the supposed advantage of blu-ray storage?
Because the disc does not spin as fast so read times are slower.The BR disc are faster at 1x than DVD but the 360 has something like 12x(???)DVD. Games built for both tend to have installs.The other thing is the game engine can't rely on an HDD because of MS horrible decision to have the Arcade,just to get a cheap console out.This is why PS3 exclusives from the best tech devs don't need an install.They just cache onto the HDD in advance.
1x Blu-ray and 1x DVD are not the same speed. The PS3's 2x drive reads at a constant 9MB/s. The 360's drive reads at a variable speed, most 360 games are dual layer, which reduces the read speed to maximum 8x (4.36MB/s - 10.57MB/s) and it varies across the disc as DVD doesn't give a constant read speed. Even on a single layer game, it's still 9.25MB/s - 15.85MB/s. The biggest difference is that when you need fast access to the data, you can cache it to a faster read portion of the disc which you can't on Blu-ray.
Just wondering, anybody notice that a week or two before KZ3 came out reviews were out for the game. I mean the sites were reviewing KZ3 before the online servers were up. Yet I can't find one review score about Crysis 2.
its because Crysis 2 is embargoed until tomorrow. No reviews will be posted until 9AM PST unless they get the game illegally.
1.1gb difference aye? thats weird, wonder why its different?
How its different? just do the math! It was originally said to be a 4.0gb install, now its a 2.9 gb install, a 1.1 gb difference then it was originally supposed to be. Still stumped? let me help you. 4.0gb - 2.9gb Borrow one from the four to make the 0 a "10". 3.(10) - 2.9 You get a 1.1gb differnce. Thats how its different, all you need to do is do the math to find the difference :D
Gee, you're a real maths wiz. To bad you're english comprehension skills suck. He's not asking the difference between two numbers, he's asking WHY is it different, to what its supposed to be. If my orange I ordered turned up yellow, and I ask why is it different, I dont want to know because its missing a shade of red, I want to know what made it so, was there a chemical spill or something?
why in the world would you think i meant the math of it? lol im asking why is the install size different than what was said.
i know it says install but could it be they added the free space needed for the game to run properly to the install size?
7 people disagree with math? Ahh, N4G! You've done it again.
Removed the multi player? I kid I kid.
It still might be 4GB, the require Install before you play the game is 2.9, but maybe it installs more as you play like some games do.
Installs as the game runs like GT5? Or 2.9 with the rest as cache.
Quick question y'all. How long is the single player campaign? Reason i ask is i'm mostly a single player guy. If it's less than 12 hours it's just not worth my mulla.
Then you'll have to play it twice.
Don't listen to Pedo. It's actually right at 12 hours...
never listen to a pedo
you people are complicated , when a game in ps3 have no install like killzone 3 you say it's a bad thing .. when a game in ps3 have small instal you say it's a bad thiing ... when a game have a big instal like gt5 you say it's a bad thing ... so what's the good thing ?!... >.<
